  • MMDetection3D: OpenMMLab's next-generation platform for general 3D object detection.
  • MMRotate: OpenMMLab rotated object detection toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMSegmentation: OpenMMLab semantic segmentation toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMOCR: OpenMMLab text detection, recognition, and understanding toolbox.
  • MMPose: OpenMMLab pose estimation toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMHuman3D: OpenMMLab 3D human parametric model toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMSelfSup: OpenMMLab self-supervised learning toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMRazor: OpenMMLab model compression toolbox and benchmark.
  • MMFewShot: OpenMMLab fewshot learning toolbox and benchmark.

  • MMEditing: OpenMMLab image and video editing toolbox.
  • MMGeneration: OpenMMLab image and video generative models toolbox.
  • MMDeploy: OpenMMLab model deployment framework.

It provides the following functionalities.

  • Universal IO APIs
  • Image/Video processing
  • Image and annotation visualization
  • Useful utilities (progress bar, timer, ...)
  • PyTorch runner with hooking mechanism
  • Various CNN architectures
  • High-quality implementation of common CUDA ops

It supports the following systems.

  • Linux
  • Windows
  • macOS

See the documentation for more features and usage.

Note: MMCV requires Python 3.6+.


There are two versions of MMCV:

  • mmcv-full: comprehensive, with full features and various CUDA ops out of box. It takes longer time to build.
  • mmcv: lite, without CUDA ops but all other features, similar to mmcv<1.0.0. It is useful when you do not need those CUDA ops.

Note: Do not install both versions in the same environment, otherwise you may encounter errors like ModuleNotFound. You need to uninstall one before installing the other. Installing the full version is highly recommended if CUDA is available.

a. Install the full version.

Before installing mmcv-full, make sure that PyTorch has been successfully installed following the official guide.

We provide pre-built mmcv packages (recommended) with different PyTorch and CUDA versions to simplify the building for Linux and Windows systems. In addition, you can run check_installation.py to check the installation of mmcv-full after running the installation commands.

i. Install the latest version.

The rule for installing the latest mmcv-full is as follows:

pip install mmcv-full -f https://download.openmmlab.com/mmcv/dist/{cu_version}/{torch_version}/index.html

Please replace {cu_version} and {torch_version} in the url to your desired one. For example, to install the latest mmcv-full with CUDA 11.1 and PyTorch 1.9.0, use the following command:

pip install mmcv-full -f https://download.openmmlab.com/mmcv/dist/cu111/torch1.9.0/index.html

Note: mmcv-full is only compiled on PyTorch 1.x.0 because the compatibility usually holds between 1.x.0 and 1.x.1. If your PyTorch version is 1.x.1, you can install mmcv-full compiled with PyTorch 1.x.0 and it usually works well. For example, if your PyTorch version is 1.8.1 and CUDA version is 11.1, you can use the following command to install mmcv-full.

pip install mmcv-full -f https://download.openmmlab.com/mmcv/dist/cu111/torch1.8.0/index.html

For more details, please refer the the following tables and delete =={mmcv_version}.

ii. Install a specified version.

The rule for installing a specified mmcv-full is as follows:

pip install mmcv-full=={mmcv_version} -f https://download.openmmlab.com/mmcv/dist/{cu_version}/{torch_version}/index.html

First of all, please refer to the Releases and replace {mmcv_version} a specified one. e.g. 1.3.9. Then replace {cu_version} and {torch_version} in the url to your desired versions. For example, to install mmcv-full==1.3.9 with CUDA 11.1 and PyTorch 1.9.0, use the following command:

pip install mmcv-full==1.3.9 -f https://download.openmmlab.com/mmcv/dist/cu111/torch1.9.0/index.html

For more details, please refer the the following tables.

Note: The pre-built packages provided above do not include all versions of mmcv-full, you can click on the corresponding links to see the supported versions. For example, you can click cu102-torch1.8.0 and you can see that cu102-torch1.8.0 only provides 1.3.0 and above versions of mmcv-full. In addition, We no longer provide mmcv-full pre-built packages compiled with PyTorch 1.3 & 1.4 since v1.3.17. You can find previous versions that compiled with PyTorch 1.3 & 1.4 here. The compatibility is still ensured in our CI, but we will discard the support of PyTorch 1.3 & 1.4 next year.

Note: mmcv-full does not provide pre-built packages for cu102-torch1.11 and cu92-torch* on Windows.

Another way is to compile locally by running

pip install mmcv-full

Note that the local compiling may take up to 10 mins.

b. Install the lite version.

pip install mmcv

c. Install full version with custom operators for onnxruntime
